Looking At The Bible Story Of Salvation

The Story of Salvation

The Bible is one of the most popular and yet misunderstood books in the world. It is possible to know a lot about the Bible without really understanding the Bible and how it all fits together. God could have written the Bible so only Greek scholars or theologians could understand it. Instead it was written in a very plain way so that it could be understood by anyone who wants to know its contents.We are going to take a big picture view of the Bibleparticularly with respect to the matter of salvation. Sometimes it is easy to see the trees and miss the forest. This lesson looks the forest! We will learn some things about the Bible itself, about God, man and the devil. We will see how God has developed His plan for saving men and what men must do to be saved.

Christs Death in Prophecy

5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. 8 He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him; He has put Him to grief. When You make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His seed.11 By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many, For He shall bear their iniquities.Christs Death in ProphecyFROM ISAIAH 53
